What is your Bankruptcy Law question, please? (What would you like to know?)
No - if you apply for and receive a mortgage modification, that is not the same as re-affirmation. In a modification, the monthly payment typically gets reduced by around $100, and the term gets extended - usually to 40 years instead of 30 - but the balance of the mortgage is not reduced.
It may and may not be worth it for you to continue paying the mortgage for a house that is worth 1/2 of the mortgage amount.
Please let me know if there is anything additional that you would like to know.
